Each day’s winner from the 4 posted on that given day will move on to the Semi Final Round. After 8 days, we will be left with 8 Semi Finalists.

For the Semi Final Round, we will again post 4 photos together each day for 2 consecutive days, asking our Facebook users to vote on one of the 4.

Each day’s winner from the 4 posted on that given day will move on to the Final Round. After these 2 days, we will be left with 2 Finalists.
